Paper Abstract

The most important parameter in search and rescue is the time it takes to locate the downed aircraft and rescue the survivors. The resulting requirement for wide-area coverage, fine resolution, and day-night all-weather operation dictates the use of a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensor. The time urgency combined with the high data volume leads to the need for a new type of data compression. This paper presents and evaluates candidate compression algorithms for SAR raw phase history and for SAR complex imagery.
